OK Forestry Services Sending Aircraft To Osage County Fire

Posted: Updated:
OSAGE COUNTY, Oklahoma -

The Oklahoma Forestry Services is sending aircraft to a fire burning in Osage County.

The fire is northwest of Skiatook near the Circle K Ranch.

Firefighters were in the same area Wednesday.

Firefighters are not only battling strong winds, but also rough terrain.

About a dozen firefighters with the Osage Nation are on the ground, deep into the woods.

Osage Nation Fire Management Officer Ross Walker said firefighters have walked more than 10 miles Thursday.

We're told about 1,100 to 1,300 acres are burning and that the fire is about 50 percent contained.

There are homes nearby but Walker said they are not threatened. He said there is a creek nearby that could help stop the flames from spreading in the direction of the homes.
